Creates a B?zier curve. Returns a Shape object that represents the new curve.

Syntax

expression. AddCurve( SafeArrayOfPoints )

expression A variable that represents a Shapes object.

Parameters

NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
SafeArrayOfPointsRequiredVariantAn array of coordinate pairs that specifies the vertices and control points of the curve. The first point you specify is the starting vertex, and the next two points are control points for the first B?zier segment. Then, for each additional segment of the curve, you specify a vertex and two control points. The last point you specify is the ending vertex for the curve. Note that you must always specify 3n + 1 points, where n is the number of segments in the curve.

Return Value

Shape

Example

The following example adds a two-segment B?zier curve to myDocument.

Dim pts(1 To 7, 1 To 2) As Single

pts(1, 1) = 0

pts(1, 2) = 0

pts(2, 1) = 72

pts(2, 2) = 72

pts(3, 1) = 100

pts(3, 2) = 40

pts(4, 1) = 20

pts(4, 2) = 50

pts(5, 1) = 90

pts(5, 2) = 120

pts(6, 1) = 60

pts(6, 2) = 30

pts(7, 1) = 150

pts(7, 2) = 90

Set myDocument = ActivePresentation.Slides(1)

myDocument.Shapes.AddCurve SafeArrayOfPoints:=pts
